Description
SHORT-LISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE A Christian Science Monitor Best Book of the Year On the morning after harvest, the inhabitants of a remote English villagenbsp;awaken looking forward tonbsp;a hard-earned day of rest and feasting at their landowner's table. But the sky is marred by twonbsp;conspicuous columns of smoke, replacing pleasurable anticipation with alarm and suspicion. One smoke column is the result of an overnight fire that has damaged the master's outbuildings. Thenbsp;second columnnbsp;rises from the wooded edge of the village, sentnbsp;up by newcomers to announce their presence. In the minds of the wary villagers a mere coincidence of events appears to be unlikely, with violent confrontation looming as the unavoidable outcome. Meanwhile, another newcomer has recently been spotted taking careful notes and making drawings of thenbsp;land. It is his presence more than any other that will threaten the village's entire way of life. In effortless and tender prose, Jim Crace details the unraveling of a pastoral idyll in thenbsp;wake of economic progress. His tale is timeless and unsettling,nbsp;framed by a beautifully evokednbsp;world that will linger in your memory long after you finish reading.
